DO-297 Training | IMA Development Guidance

DO-297 training covers the concepts, methods, and requirements to develop and maintain a successful DO-297 standard. DO-297 training course provides the foundation for creating Integrated Modular Avionics (IMA) system and its correlation to RTCA/DO-297 guidance and certification considerations.

Integrated Modular Avionics (IMA) Definition

Integrated Modular Avionics is referred to a communal series of adaptable, reusable, and interoperable resources of hardware and software that develops a platform that delivers services, planned and verified to a distinct series of safety and execution requirements, operations associated with host applications execution aircraft.

  • IMA is an inattentive method to HW/SW, SW/SW, and HW/HW interfaces.
  • IMA is a retreat from federations of devoted or specialty processors
  • Differences between the federated systems and IMA systems are particular and provided systems may integrate components of both.
